The man behind the lens.
There is nothing more humbling and tranquil than floating across the breathtaking landscape of this continent, Australia. Over the past six years, I’ve worked as a helicopter mustering pilot across this vast and diverse expanse of land and I’m constantly in awe of the raw beauty of nature from above. I have witnessed how the landscape awakens after the heavens open up, parched soils rejuvenated by drought breaking rains and have seen changing light accentuate the hues and the unique features of this ancient land. My work has taken me the length and breadth of this formidable country. From the hot, humid tropics and dense rainforests of Far North Queensland to the cold, windy and desolate plains of the Nullarbor. From the golden grain crops of New South Wales to the turquoise and transparent waters of Western Australia.
